Question yellow leaves on green beans

utdeedee(7A-East Tennessee)June 19, 2007

My Ky wonder bush beans are in full bloom with small beans putting on. I've noticed a lot of the plants have bright yellow leaves at the base of them. I don't think it's blight. Mineral deficiency of some kind?

I've googled and searched this site and not found any answers. I don't want to lose my plants. :(

Have they been under any stress...I will tell you that I don't believe yellow leaves means disease necessarily...I just go along and snap the leaves off so they don't bother me....and unless I see something other than the occasional leaf or the look of real disease, I don't worry about it...plants just do that sort of thing from time to time for whatever reason..to much water, too much heat, rough handling ...whatever..
